If you are Jewish, regardless of your affiliation, one time or another you surely have heard the famous song, “Tradition!” that Tevye sings in Fiddler on the Roof. In fact, to the naked eye, certain minhagim, or traditions, that we perform may appear ostensibly weird. Indeed, there is no such thing as simply being an Orthodox Jew or a Chassidic Jew.
More often than not a person that comes from an Ashkenazic background will dress and act with different nuances and subtleties than a Sephardic Jew hailing from Yemen. Truth be told, only an accomplished historian may pick up on the multitude of differences…!
To that end, I found these recent posts of great importance in that they succinctly and beautifully explain the rationale behind the particular Chassidic tradition.
- Breslov Chassidus and Shmirat HaBrit
- Why Chassidim wear a gartel, refrain from wearing a tie and more!
- Children and Non-Kosher Stuffed Animals
Finally, while this clip is not new, it does display in a comedic sense, some of the differences that we Jews have in our traditions, and yet also shows how we can close this gap and express our love for every Jew!
